Here Porter and Maya are working on one of the new favorite crafts. They worked on these projects every day for long periods of time, and were really bummed when they ran out of beads (I guess another trip to the craft store is in order).

Maya made a little owl. It was very cute, and she and Porter (who made a Jolly Rodger - Pirate flag) had a great time playing with their little creations. They would pretend that their figures would call each other and what-not.
In part our hibernation was to protect those around us. Benny has had a pretty wicked cold the last few weeks (each of us got the cold to some extent, but his seemed to be the worse). He seems to be doing much better (although the cough and runny nose seem to be lingering).
This picture just cracked me up because Maya looks so put out in the background. Like "gee, the boys always get to have all the fun". A few weeks ago Casey bought a bottle of 'spray air' like to clean off your computer keyboard. While using the spray we discovered our hands would have this very bitter taste after touching the desk where we had sprayed it (don't ask me why grown-ups would be tasting their hands anyways). Come to find out they add a bittering agent to this stuff to prevent people from sniffing it. So being the ever resourceful parents that we are, we began spraying it on Maya's thumb to prevent her from sucking it. The first time she tasted it she RAN into the bathroom crying and saying "THAT'S THE WORST TASTE I'VE EVER TASTED!". It was pretty 'a-larious'. Hopefully it'll work.
